Beth El’s J-LOFT wins kudos for volunteerism

JLOFT teens built desks in the Beth El parking lot for students who didn’t have their own study space in their homes.

Volunteer Ventures MA (VVMA) highlighted J-LOFT (Jewish Learning Opportunities for Teens), a program for MetroWest Jewish teens founded by Beth El’s Shoni Aronovich, for its hands-on service programs. In just one year, J-LOFT organized three different service programs with VVMA that engaged over 200 MetroWest individuals and families in service: a desk-building event for J-LOFT parents and teens, a shelf-building event for the mitzvah class at Beth El, and the wildly popular MLK Day of Service, which engaged over 50 families in making much-needed food and student desks for various MetroWest nonprofits and schools.
